Blackhawks [Blackhawk; Andre; Chuck; Hendrickson; Olaf; Stanislaus; Chop-Chop]; Herr von Luben (Nazi villain, introduction, presumably killed); Herr Lieb (Nazi villain, introduction, poses as Hendrickson, death); Johann (Nazi villain); Nazis (villains, some die)
Synopsis
In order to root out a Nazi look-alike of one of the Blackhawks who has infiltrated the team, Chop-Chop claims to have created a secret potion that is deadly poison to spies but not to an innocent man. Each of the suspects is brought into a room alone and forced to drink the concoction, which is actually just a mix of red-hot and plain horrible kitchen spices. All of the Blackhawks gag on the mixture, except for Hendrikson who pretends it doesn't bother him, revealing him to be the spy.

Indexer Notes

The Blackhawks go shopping for another island base in this story, relocating to one in the Pacific in order to be closer to the Americans' conflicts. They make their decision at the end of the story, determined to establish a base there "tomorrow" (the new Blackhawk Island is first depicted in issue #24).
